LaJuné McMillian (@_lovelaja) is a new media artist, maker, and creative technologist living in New York. Dedicated to creating art through the abstraction of personal experience, McMillian’s work is concerned with interconnection and experiencing life beyond the material world. Integrating performance, virtual reality, and physical computing to question our current use of technology and forms of communication, their art and research centers around creating technology and media that are inherently intersectional, allowing communities that have been ignored to have a space to be recognized, loved, accepted and heard.
McMillian has presented work at Dance on Camera at Lincoln Center, MakerFaire, National Sawdust, Liberty Science Center, Chelsea Film Festival, Creative Tech Week, and Art && Code: Weird Reality. In collaboration with the cyberfeminist Hyphen Labs collective, McMillian is also the lead character animator for NeuroSpeculative AfroFeminism, a multi-platform project which has been shown at festivals including the Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, and the Tribeca Film Festival.
